Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

Hi guys.
This lovely house is one of my favourite lots for playing, in these days.
It features a spectacular view of the sim-ocean, very romantic at evening when the sunset colors everything in orange and gold. If your sims like to play the piano, here there's a beautiful veranda quite on the white sand beach, where the piano players can surely find inspiration and think to be Mozart or Chopin for a while.



This lot is designed for a couple + 1-2 kids.
It features also a nice bbq place and a warm lake.
I built it in Twikki Island, where it's an elegant vacation house, but I tested it also as normal residential house and it works wonderfully, provided that in your neighborhood there's enough space along the coast for placing it.


Fully furnished, elegant and relaxing.
Alarms in discrete points.

The lot was built using AnyGame by Numenor: you need NL, OfB, Season and BV.

Cleaned, checked and tested in game (a clone lot) for 6 sim days, either as vacation home and as regular house.
IMPORTANT note for Mehrlicht (and for all of you who love the pixelated damned little people hehe): no sims were sacrified for testing this lot.

Please, do not upload anywhere (NO absolutely no Exchange) and do not claim at yours. As far as my maxis recolors, they are and must remain free. Obviously you can use them as much as you want, I'll be very glad. Give credit, don't claim at yours, these are basic golden rules good for all the community.

Enjoy! Kiss and ciao.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Basic Download and Install Instructions:

1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.

2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.

3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
  • You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.

What a scenic lot! One can almost feel the ocean breeze and hear the wonderful cadence of the waves upon the shore… Your work is beautiful, lamamma Thank you for such an idyllic getaway lot.

Yeah, it looks like the sims will still have sand between their toes when they go to the fridge for a sandwich! It is so relaxing and simple! Thanks,

Thanks for commenting, ladies, I'm glad you like White Sands.
Actually it's my dream house .... if only my boy friend were rich!!! Money don't mean anything for me (I spend everything I earn, not able to save even a little amount) however I would have enough funds for building this house in real life... :D

I downloaded this house and put it into my game (all expansions, all stuff packs) into Twikki Island-- it's beautiful! My sims can swim in the ocean, but they don't have the option to sunbathe, build sandcastles, or dig for treasure. I see those options in the screenshots-- do you have any suggestions why it wouldn't work?


Thanks!

I'll check this evening.
However I tested this lot in Bluewater Village and yes, my lucky sim had those options. I'll let you know.

Thank you for the nice comment.

Krashkitty, thank you! I'm happy you like my work :D

While it's not exactly my thing, this is a unique and inspiring creation. The little details (furnishings, walls, floors) really come together to make the house work. Thank you for sharing.

I'm no longer active here. My latest crestions can be found st:

Thank you for the positive feed back (Jason, what a nice surprize your message! yes this is not your style, I appreciate your visit :D).

I checked and can confirm that I have the options to swim, build a castle and to take a sun bath, even in a regular neighborhood, provided that this lot is placed correctly along the coast. Actually I forgot to test the digging thing.
Do you still have this problem? Have you tried to move the lot to a different slot?
I'm very sorry not to be able to give you more help!

I was cruising when I noticed this upload....I don't download many lots, but at first glance, I'd have to say this is quite beautiful and it is apparent that you've put a lot of work into it. This is definitely going into my downloads folder....thank you for sharing it!

This house is amanzing, but I am having a problem: when I try to load the lot, my game crashes. I have all EPs (including FT) and stuff packs. Do you have any idea of what is happening?

No idea, sorry, this lot still works well for me and the nice people I ask to test. Would you try to install the lot without the CCs? or try again to download it anyway, just to avoid a not complete download process, sometime it happens. Please, let me know if the problem is solved.

I really love this house. Starting a new neighborhood for my retiring Sims and this is just what I need. I wanted a well laid out house that looked easy to play to use in setting up an ocean view retirement village. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful work!

For anyone who finds the house crashes the game - I also had this problem so I installed the lot using Clean Installer but took out all the custom content included, it now loads fine. I hope this helps
